Hollyann Morton(田径助推器)
Ms. Morton is a new parent to the O’Connell family this year. She responded to an announcement placed in the KnighLline looking for 博亚体育App下载的支持者 volunteers. The initial email exchange was a typical new volunteer interaction. “是的,我很感兴趣. 不,我的时间不多了.” She then met the boosters leadership and immediately they knew that she would be an invaluable resource and friend. “Ms. Morton is an angel sent to us in our time of need,” they said. When the boosters are short volunteers or are overwhelmed, she magically appears to lend a hand. Ms. Morton has been an integral part of the success this year.

David Nasca '72(教员——40年)

Mr. Welsford has been a religion teacher for over 40 years at Bishop O’Connell, having spent most of his teaching career in the 教区的阿灵顿. 他教过各个年级的学生, covering both the Old Testament to the New Testament in his classroom. There is a very good chance that if you meet an O’Connell graduate, he or she would have had Mr. 在他们高中生涯的某个时候. His constant presence on Little Falls Road is beautifully summed up by his favorite phrase, “感谢上帝的恩典, 我在这里.”
